Look what came in the mail today, straight from the sale page at ThinkGeek: a brand-new Jot Mini stylus, regularly $20+, bought by me for only five bucks. Thanks, ThinkGeek! Apparently propellerheads don’t like the color red, but I do. Looks like they’re sold out of the discounted red ones–I guess I got lucky.
The stylus I’d been using was one of those generic touch-screen things bought off the rack at Office Depot, with a tip about the same size as the top of my little finger. That’s right, no real precision. So you can imagine I was pretty eager to take the Jot for a test spin.
Within five minutes, I became completely spoiled. I’ll never go back to that gigantic stylus again, at least when I want to draw. Here are a couple of quick sketches I did today, using the Paper by 53 app.
By the way, if there’s anyone listening from the development team working on Paper by 53, I have a humble suggestion for you. I’ve tried all the other major drawing/sketching programs out there, and nothing compares to the pen tool in Paper. Add layers and I’ll be happy forever, pretty please?
Here’s one last drawing I did with the new stylus tonight:
Can you tell I’m a happy camper?
